  We've been kicking this around a bit, and I thought I'd ask the group's
opinion.

  Assume for a moment that a commercial airframer could build a transport
that is capable of flying halfway around the world in scheduled service.
Does this have any real value?  Or are we happy at roughly 7000nm range?

  I'd ask a live customer's opinion if I knew one.  :-)
